Is there anything more disgusting and pathetic in life than the man whose goal is to accumulate wealth?

He gets excited at seeing his bank account get bigger, he shows more emotional response to being handed $5k tax free than he does when his wife says "I love you" and means it, he cares more about money than anything else in the world. It's sad and the sign of a rotten soul.

I think lust is more disgusting than greed, especially since most sins, even disregarding religious context, are of that nature rather than the latter. At least greed implies productivity, whereas lust provides no other end than toxic pleasure.

not true, the accumulation of wealth is a bureaucratic simulation of productivity. Sure if a business makes money it can roll its profits back into R&D to improve itself, but the idea that individual salaried wealth is equal to the level of work your putting into your job is simply not true.

Greed is more destructive than lust by its nature. Greed is the ruinous accumulation of wealth at the expense of others; it’s one of the primary characteristics of a psychopath. Lust corrupts easier than greed, though. I claim that pride is the first of the evils, since all sins come from it, since pride is putting oneself first above God and man.

Please, tell me how you stockpiling money is going to be "productive" to society. Past a certain point incalculable individual wealth doesn't generate anything meaningful or valuable from it. Sure you can leave it as inheritance or donate vast sums to charity, but the problems those charities tackle are not necessarily going to be solved by your generosity.

>He gets excited at seeing his bank account get bigger,
Literally the rational response. Even if you are gonna moralfag, a larger bank account gives better potential for charity and is something to be excited about
>he shows more emotional response to being handed $5k tax free than he does when his wife says "I love you" and means it,
Repetition. If you're wife says "I love you" everyday, then it is less exciting that randomly being given $5k. Doesn't mean that that love doesn't matter to you or that you would leave her for money.
>he cares more about money than anything else in the world
I agree on this one, that is a bad sign. Disregarding money, caring about material things in general to the exclusion of all else is a bad sign.
